What You Need:

  • To make jelly bean bark: 8 ounces chopped white chocolate and 1/2 cup jelly beans
  • For a cookie crunch bark, 8 ounces chopped milk chocolate and 6 chocolate wafer cookies (crushed)
  • For peppermint bark: 8 ounces milk chocolate, chopped and ½ cup Junior Mints
  • For Mom's Choice Bark: 8 ounces dark chocolate (chopped), 1/3 cup dried cherries and 1/4 cup roasted almonds

What You Do:

  1. Making chocolate bark is really simple. The first step is to set up a bain marie. To make a bain marie, fill a saucepan with about two inches of water. Place a glass mixing bowl snugly on top of the saucepan. The bottom of the bowl should not be touching the water. Bring the water to a simmer, and then reduce the heat. The bowl should never be too hot to touch. (If it is, reduce the heat more or remove it from the heat.)
  2. Add the chopped chocolate to the bowl, stirring occasionally as it melts. Remove the bowl from heat and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. The chocolate should be cool enough to not melt the ingredients you are about to add, but still remain in its liquid state.
  3. Once the chocolate is cooler, stir in the other ingredients.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour the chocolate mixture onto the sheet. Using a spatula evenly spread out the mixture. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes until set. Break the large chocolate slab into smaller “S'more-sized” pieces.
  5. As a time saver, these recipes skip the tempering process. To avoid getting grey streaks on your bark, make it in the morning and keep it in the refrigerator or the cooler until you are ready to assemble the S'mores.
